I’m hoping to do a similar interview with Alison today and ask the Pittsburgh native about her experiences with the Junior Tennis Champions Center in College Park, Maryland and her impressive run on the grass courts of England this summer.
Riske should be a crowd favorite and has already mentioned on twitter how thankful she is for the fan support that JTCC members have given her thus far.
The match is scheduled after the 2 p.m. third set conclusion of the ATP match postponed last night between James Duckworth and Kevin Anderson, with Anderson up 6-3, 3-6, 5-4. That should end quickly.
All we can do now is hope the rain holds off.
JTCC affiliated player Alison Riske will take on No. 5 seed Sorana Cirstea in the second round today at the Citi Open. They are scheduled as the second match on Grandstand 2.
In their first round matches, Riske defeated Vania King, 6-3, 7-5 and Cirstea bounced Lesia Tsurenko, 7-5, 1-1 (ret.).
The two faced off back in 2007 on the hard courts of the US Open. Riske defeated Cirstea 6-2, 7-6(4).
